Tara Glastonbury (Stitch & Yarn)

0.00

Tara Glastonbury is a textile designer and artist passionate about sustainability and reuse. Working largely in the mediums of quilting and embroidery, Tara’s craft practice takes patchwork back to its roots by using secondhand, waste textiles, scraps and leftovers. From these she produces quilt patterns, one-off quilts and textile jewellery regularly influenced by global textile traditions.

In her exhibiting arts practice Tara likes to juxtapose fast fashion and mass production with the slow art of stitching using natural fibres and dyes. She is also drawn to exploring the notions of craft versus art, the politics of craft as women’s work and the undervaluing of creative production more broadly.
